I produced this article for MSNBC.com today, "Will 'Song of the South' rise again?"
The Disney film has never been released on video in the U.S. because it's been criticized for insensitive racial attitudes, all of which sailed completely over my head as a little white girl seeing it as a kid. All I remember were the neat combination of live acting and cartoons, and the cool song "Zip-ah-dee-do-dah!" ("Everything is satisfactual!")
I swear I saw it in the theater, so according to that article, I must have seen it either in 1972 or 1980, neither of which seems a likely year. I'd be interested to see it again, if nothing else, just to see for myself what all the controversy is all about.
